Mezzo-Soprano Megan Eyre Terwilliger has been described as “having a natural talent for the stage.” As a versatile vocalist, Megan recently placed in the Beethoven Club of Memphis Young Artist Competition and has recently sung the role of Marcellina in Le Nozze di Figaro as well as the soprano solo in Handel’s Messiah. Other roles sung include Mother Marie in Dialogues of the Carmelites, Miss Pinkerton in Old Maid and the Thief and Hänsel in scenes from Hansel and Gretel. Megan has also played musical theatre characters, such as The Witch from Into the Woods and Mae Jones from Kurt Weill’s Street Scene. In teaching, Megan aims to create a safe environment in which students can learn, experiment, and thrive using whatever natural gifts he or she has, which at times is yet to be revealed. With a knowledge of current scientific findings, Megan guides each student through an artful study of music, providing encouragement for being the best singer or professional voice-user he or she can be. Through an un-biased and direct approach, Megan hopes to be part of the solution for whatever problem(s) students encounter with the voice, so that her clients can progress to be authentic, confident, and healthy. Megan believes effective teaching takes study, careful listening, expectation, observation, and above all else, patience and laughter.
